About Pickleball

Pickleball is a paddle sport created for all ages and skill levels.  The rules are simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players.  Pickleball combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong.  Played both indoors or outdoors on a badminton-sized court and a slightly modified tennis net.  Pickleball is played with a paddle and a plastic ball.  The USA Pickleball Association currently estimates there are now over 100,000 players actively playing pickle ball.
